A yoga mat, a good book and a cup of coffee can make me happy for quite a while.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It is an excellent way of sharing experiences, meeting new minds, and exploring this big beautiful world.
I am an anthropologist by training, and work as a translator/writer/yoga teacher. Being a 'vegetarian' who occasionally indulge in lamb, yogi and traveller teaches me to lead a life of minimum impact.
Having spent substantial time with the Tibetan nomads, I appreciate human bonds and love creating a sense of belonging for those with whom our paths cross - exactly the way how I have been treated there.
- film making
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
What intrigues me in these different forms of arts is the cultural spirit associated with a particular place/region, rather than the particular genre...
A recent good book: The train to Pakistan by Kushwant Singh
movies: Dersu Uzala, Ivan's Childhood, Underground (by Kusturica)..
music: Chopin, Rachmaninoff...
food: mostly vegetarian dishes, Indian ones. Culinary arts have no boundaries. :)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
"Doubt - doubt all the possibilities you have. Doubt what you are doing now."
- Best advice I've received.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Time is the most precious thing you can ever share with someone.
I make good vegetarian dishes, and pancakes.
if I happen to travel with my camera gears
- let's get zen together...
You can practice yoga, meditation with me in the morning if you are an early bird. My yoga methods are rooted in the Iyengar way, so it's more alignment-focus, and stays in one posture for a few minutes. Power yoga? No thanks!
